In my last two lesson videos I covered twelve of the most common chord progressions.
Understanding the theory of common chord progressions helps us:
- learn songs and progressions faster,
- remember chord progressions longer,
- and write our own progressions with ease.
This third lesson of my four-lesson mini-series covers eight more of the most common progressions.
These are progressions that include four chords or more.
I bet you'll recognize most of these right away!
